Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Lincoln Navigator than in the Land Rover Defender, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Lincoln Navigator will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Land Rover Defender.

Convenience

Cost

Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Land Rover Defender will cost more in terms of transportation costs than the Lincoln Navigator.
